Milestone Music - Dan O'Sullivan - The Backstreet Boy
Every Tuesday, we dedicate this segment to the songs that bring you right back to a very specific time in your life - first love, exams, moving out from home, backpacking around the world, nights out, nights in, going to college, bad jobs, falling in love, falling out of love, weddings and babies.
For coming on the show and sharing your Milestone Music Moment, we'll send you a lovely momento of your story. You will receive all the elements of the tale - the date, lyrics of the song and more, all on a beautifully finished poster for you to treasure.
This week's Milestone was brought to us by Dan O'Sullivan from Co. Kerry, with a song which always transports him (and his family) back to Fossa in 1998, when he was 12-years-old.
It was his mum's 40th birthday, so Dan and his siblings had practiced a special dance routine to celebrate the occasion.
As per usual with kids and their plans, they don't always go to perfection.
They still managed to pull it off and Dan even sang a bit of it a capella on the show this morning.
Now, whenever they hear the song it puts a huge smile on their faces and reminds them of their youthful exuberance. There's still plenty of zest in Dan, as you'll hear in his hilarious Milestone. What a story-teller!!
The song they performed was this bad boy...
